Hmm, how strange. Rick Santorum and Arlen Specter are at opposite ends over the stem cell debate -- go figure. Hey Rick, can I ask: with Specter being pro-choice and all, and now perhaps to your surprise you discover he's for stem cell research, why is it you decided to endorse him last year over his pro-life challenger, Pat Toomey? I thought you've made it very clear that there's no room for compromise when it comes to abortion and such related issues? But apparently when it comes to politics, and you have a clear choice between a pro-choice incumbent senator and a pro-life challenger, then it's OK to go with the pro-abortion guy.... How does he explain his way out of that one? (He does seem to spend most of his time trying to clarify his statements -- mainly because he frequently makes outrageous remarks for the benefit of his far-right constituency, and then does the backtrack-and-clarify move that we've seen so often from the GOP).

Anyone who doesn't see Santorum for the hypocrite and typical-politician that he regularly exemplifies is a fool.
